The Holiday Season Is Almost Here...

Believe it or not, the "Holiday Season" is just around the corner. It's going to be here before we know it. I know, I know, I can't believe it either, but it's true. I've got a bad habit of procrastinating on my shopping until the very last minute. Each year, I say I'm going to be like my sister-in-law and get my shopping done way ahead of time, but, to be honest, it never happens. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that there really aren't many stores around here to choose from when doing holiday shopping. Therefore, I end up doing most, if not all, of my shopping online. Besides, you can't beat picking out gifts without fighting crowds and having those purchases delivered right to your door without any hassle.
We all know about and have been affected in some way by the current state of the economy. Well, shopping early helps avoid the higher holiday prices and helps ensure you get the item you want without having to endure stressful measures to locate that item when availability gets low. I'm thinking it makes the most sense, and avoiding stress and high costs are both things that I could really benefit from right now!

So, tell me - when do you do your holiday shopping? Are you one of those people who are done way before the holidays arrive, or do you end up scrambling at the last minute?
